How much money can I get for parental benefit when my yearly income is zero.

Sjukpenninggrundande inkomst och föraldrapenning (original title)
Hi team,
I want to ask SGI and Parental allowance(Föräldrapenning).

My wife, unemployed in Sweden and taking care of 1 year old daughter, applied for her first parental leave for 27 days at a sickness benefit level.

After submitting application electronically, Today we received the conclusion(Beslut) from Försäkringskassan that she is not entitled to get a sickness benefit level because she has no income.

In this case, how does she have to do to get parental benefits at a the basic level [grundnivå] ? On the application menu(Föräldrapenning), there's only two alternatives, Sickness level and minimum level [lägstanivå]. Is it paid at the basic level, 250kr per day, automatically without any correction or re-application?

Thank you in advance for your help!!


  • Hello!

    Yes, that is correct. When we make a decision that the yearly income (SGI) is zero, then we will automatically pay out parental benefit days on S-level (the sickness benefit level) on a basic level, that is 250 SEK per day before tax.

    Your wife does not have to send us a new application.

    When the SGI decision has been made and everything else is correct then she can log in to our website Mina sidor and check the preliminary payments of parental benefit.

    Best regards,
